My background in recruitment
I have worked in engineering recruitment since 2010, recruiting across manufacturing and engineering disciplines. In 2017, I was promoted to Business Development Manager and began specialising in executive search recruitment and senior appointments.
What I do at ATA Recruitment
I focus entirely on executive search, recruiting Senior Managers and Directors on retained assignments. I work as a strategic partner to clients to understand their business goals and objectives, and create a detailed profile of the ideal candidate. My Thomas International accreditation allows me to conduct full psychometric testing, something I offer as part of every executive search project.
The best part of my job
I love a challenge, and working on high-profile and hard-to-fill roles is really rewarding. My favourite part of my job is having real in-depth discussions with clients, as I really enjoy demonstrating how recruitment can play an integral part in business strategy. I get a real buzz from making senior placements, but even more so from knowing successful candidates have played a part in helping my clients' business to grow.
What I do when I'm not in the office
My passions outside of work include sports, especially Formula 1 and boxing, as well as house and dance music.
"In March 2019, we had an urgent requirement to recruit a Managing Director. The assignment was a crucial role with a short lead time, and we assigned Ajay for the executive search campaign. As a result, Ajay was able to source a number of highly suitable applicants from within our sector and successfully completed the assignment within 5 weeks and the initial signs of the new Managing Director are positive."
"From the initial presentation, I felt confident that Ajay was the right person to help us recruit a Senior Director into our business. I was particularly impressed with the level of detail Ajay will go through to understand a business, the role and key challenges/objectives of an assignment. Whilst managing an end-to-end recruitment process, I found Ajay to be diligent, hard-working and providing a quality service throughout the entire process."
"Aside from traditional recruitment services, Ajay created the internal company profile to be issued to candidates, the job profile, a targeted search & selection approach, a managed recruitment service and a detailed summary of each suitable applicant. As Ajay is a trained Thomas International Practitioner, we was offered Thomas International assessments for each applicant which helped us to understand behavioural characteristic and guided us through the interview process."
